Product Description
This test bank includes twelve original sets of multiple-choice questions, which are written in the new stimulus-style will come into use on the 2017 AP World History test. Each set includes a short primary- or secondary- source excerpt, and 2-5 questions over the excerpt. The bank includes a total of 30 questions.

The questions cover AP World History Periods 1 & 2 (up to 600 CE) and are related to the Paleolithic Era, Neolithic Revolution, Ancient Civilizations, and Classical Civilizations. They are aligned to the College Board Curriculum Framework and to the nine historical thinking skills emphasized on the revised AP test.
